Breche de la somme (26th april)

Again a perfect day of skiing in ecrin massif with good friends !

What an amazing place are the southern alps, so wild and unknown. even the way up up to la breche de la somme is quite crowdy but nothing compared to the Mont blanc or valais ascent that look more like taking the subway instead of getting into the mountains !!

Just for the eyes, check some pics of this ascent that let you stare at dome des ecrins ( 2nd highest peak of the region) all the way up !!
